Holding each string in one hand, ask an adult or friend to twist the paper disk in one direction. Pull the strings taut, let loose of the spinner, and watch your disk whirl! See the beautiful patterns you made—spinning at top speed.
For even more excitement, bend some of the strips to create undulating moves. Experiment with the possibilities!
